Hey all, so after playing my placements and placing in silver V, I misjudged the amount of time I had to take a break from ranked and got put in bronze I. This is what I awoke to today, a realization that I had to start kicking *** and taking names or else I'd be stuck in bronze, THE HORROR! THE HORRORRRRRR!

So, with that in mind, I always wanted to get to gold, so here's my journey to gold, in between playing with friends I'll be working on ranked games.

The good ones I'll upload, the bad ones I'll only screenshot, the first one, I was irritated and didn't screenshot.

I was playing trundle, they banned hecarim and firstpicked jarvan and I was like "well I don't know anyone else decently enough, and my team didn't FP jarvan like I asked, they just decided to FP lulu"

the bot lane lulu/twitch got first blood and still lost lane, getting outfarmed by graves, not harassing, and eventually getting killed 3 times before I finished my second gank top, where, of course, the wukong lost to darius.

his reasoning for losing to darius is "I had to leashe for you!" which is of course, stupid, considering he didn't need to leashe that hard in the first place and didn't.

now here's the clincher guys, darius controlled my blue side of the jungle along with jarvan, I had no money to buy wards because I couldn't farm, because kayle tried to control my bottom jungle while she beat out our diana.

my team blamed me for losing, because "this game lost as soon as you picked trundle"

no sir, this game was lost as soon as you didn't build armor to handle darius's level 1-5 and didn't harass him properly, and this game was lost when our twitch stealthed walked up behind a level 4 graves and a level 4 taric and got killed, and this game was lost when diana got camped and never buaght wards.

it's not my fault if you lose your lanes, that's not my job.


ANYWAYS

this is my journey to ranked gold V, as a jungle main I play mostly in this order

jungle Jarvan IV, Hecarim, Elise, Zac, Cho'Gath

top lane Kennen, Malphite

Mid lane Nidalee, Ahri, Jayce

ADC Twitch, Ezreal, Vayne

support Sona, Nami

any tips or help is greatly appreciated!

champs look good to me not that I am a professional...**** haven't even started ranked...as far as that game goes...let them flame...nothing wrong with trundle...and a twitch/lulu lane while weird in the first place...that doesn't harass is dumb. wukong not a good pick against darius...so I guess he thought he was going to out play him. yeah it is funny with the farm because as jungle when your lanes do bad you try to gank more but lose out on farm...and when your ganks don't help the lanes cause they are super bad...you essentially just put yourself into a position where you can't do anything because you fall behind...than your team blames you for sucking...typical noob **** from people who don't understand the jungle. i hate to say that you should be more selfish at that level of elo but most of the higher elo people I have talked to suggest being more selfish...as jungle I would farm as much as you can...if lanes get pushed so be it..also try to farm the other jungle when you can....also farm your lanes when they back...if they get pissed too bad cause you need the farm to carry them.

Need more diverse champion pool, Darius only works at <1200 elo and there are many champions who are hard matchups for all three of your mid mains. Should also consider picking up an ADC with a dash/blink, your three main choices cannot easily fix their positioning in a teamfight and are forced to walk (Graves/Corki/Ezreal/Caitlyn/Vayne/Trist etc. all have a repositioning skill).

No comment on jungle since I rarely play it.

There is literally nothing in LoL that only works at <1200 elo (when it comes to champs that is).

Agree with your opinion on the ADs, jungle is fine though personally I prefer playing Trundle top :3

well, I know how to use basically every ADC at some level of competence (I mained ADC back in the day) but thse are the ones I like the most

My top lane works fairly well myself, I havnt tried trundle top, but I don't get to do anything but jungle much, since my friends are always like "NO JUNGLE SHURU CARRY US CARRY US PLZ"

my support is made of the top three supports, and I rarely support as is.

I'm trying to diversify though, it's just difficult when I don't get to play much in terms of laning.

can anyone give some suggestions on champions?

EDIT: queued with a gold player somehow

everyone fraeked when they saw I was bronze and went "OMG VI THIS IS HOW YOU COUNTER JUNGLE, DONT FEED OK? IF YOU FEED WE REPORT FOR NOOB, DO YO KNOW YOUR ROUTE" at me, like I was ****ing stupid. I went 2/2/3 and no one else went better than 1/8, and that was the only other person with a kill.


didn't snap screen, was irritated

^ lol ok so that first quote about not feeding was a giveaway that you were going to lose...people don't seem to understand that being toxic or flaming or in general not working with your team = you suck and will lose...it is 5v5...yes 5v5...not 1v5, 2v5, 3v5, or even 4v5 unless you are unlucky and someone dc's....team game...so be a team player.

also people threatening to report is hilarious.

Honestly, almost any champ can work, it's more important that you play correctly, build correctly and know the matchups of the champs you play.

However, Ashe doesn't work as well in solo queue as other ADs imo. The ones Satella mentioned are all better suited for this (though I'm not sure about Vayne, since she's vulnerable in lane and your support should really know this and play accordingly, which is not always the case at lower elos).

Since you asked for names though, three completely random general suggestions I have for you are Zed, Kassadin and Renekton.

Good luck with your journey.
I will give a few tips since you asked:

1. I'd practice few other top laners. Renekton, maybe Riven ?
2. Jungle, Jarvan IV and Hecarim are somewhat banned and picked and I find there are better junglers than Trundle at the moment. I'd add Maokai, Xin Zhao, Lee Sin as suggestions.
3. ADC. You currently have sort of "weak" or easily countered ones. I'd add Caitlyn at least.
4. Recognize your mistakes and learn from them
5. Pay attention to farming
6. Try not to flame your teammates, even if they are 0-8. Instead try to look from the side, what could you have done to prevent it and how does it affect you

id recommend picking up nocturne as a jungler, ive been doing good with him in norms and the few ranked games i played with him and i usually go with him if hecarim gets banned and he does really well because of how everything is warded now adays, which can be good if someone wards the other teams blue and you ult in to steal it and get a kill

as for trundle i didnt have a good game with him in ranked but i used to play him nonstop in normals a few weeks ago, im sure after his rework and the major buff to his ult youll be having better games and i probably will too, what do you normally build on him anyways?

as for mid im going to say one thing, i hate you for being one of the people that play lux

and one more thing for trundle have you tried doing a smiteless blue and then stealing red? i almost always did that start with him and it ended good because the other jungler would try to steal your red and you could possibly get a kill with double buffs or mids help
